hometown fun

IMG_3507 IMG_3521 IMG_3541 IMG_3553 My hometown celebrated its bicentennial last week, and as part of the festivities, steam train rides were offered. We were fortunate to have tickets this past weekend, when the weather couldn’t have been more beautiful. The hour-long ride took us through familiar countryside, yet from a different perspective along the rails rather than the commonly used paved roads. Not to mention the slower pace allowed riders to take in much more of the landscape and the country air, too. 🙂 It was a wonderful experience, and we’re already looking forward to  the next ride in the fall,  to coincide with the autumn foliage. 🙂
